Residents in two West Suffolk villages have been hit with an interruption to their water supply for the second time this week.

Households in Thurston and Pakenham, near Bury St Edmunds, are currently experiencing low water pressure, while some are without water completely.

It is the second time that both villages have been hit with the problem, after a water main burst in Thurston on Tuesday.

A statement on the the Anglian Water website said: "We're really sorry but some customers in Thurston, Pakenham, Upper town and the surrounding areas may be experiencing very low water pressure.

"We're still working hard on the essential maintenance being carried out in your area and we'll get your supply back to normal as soon as possible, but it is proving to be a complex job that is taking longer than we originally."

It is estimated that supply will return to normal by 5pm this afternoon.
